A review of local parking strategies identified three locations where pay parking has been introduced to alleviate parking congestion.
The following locations were subject to chronic parking congestion, with high demand and little or no turnover:
, Strathfield, between Raw Square and Moseley Street
Rider Boulevard, Rhodes, between Oulton Avenue and Shoreline Drive
Hospital Road, Concord West, north of Fremont Street
In late 2010 Council notified the local community in these locations that pay parking was being considered. Council recently installed new parking time limits and paid parking in these locations.
Hospital Road has four-hour parking and Rider Boulevard two-hour parking. Everton Road will have no time limits to allow commuter parking.
New Pay & Display parking meters, with credit card or coin payment facilities, have been installed.
